Got Sail? Photos from Two Weeks Before the Mast



Hawaiian Chieftain fan Jamie Bain sent us these photos of her husband Matthew during his recent stint aboard the vessel. Matthew participated in our Two Weeks Before the Mast program, which gives volunteers a taste of life on a tall ship. He sailed from Ventura, Calif., to the San Francisco Bay Area. As you can see, he performed many of the same tasks done by any tall ship sailor, all under the watchful eye of an experienced crew person. If you'd like to test your sailing mettle on a real tall ship, contact us at 800-200-5239 or email volunteer@historicalseaport.org. You'll find more information on our Volunteering page.
